No Chart Downloader Tab

I am unable to get the chart downloaded tab under options/charts with opencpn 4.8.8. I do not think I ever had it in any previous version. I read several treads about left over files and paths from previous versions so I completely uninstalled opencpn and deleted left over directories and files from windows program files and program data dirs. I then cleaned the registry and restarted the computer before re-installing v4.8.8, still no tab. Anyone have this issue?

Re: No Chart Downloader Tab

I will try to guess you are using Windows XP. If so, sorry, due to it's inability to support today's encryption standards used on the web, the plugin does not work there.
If my guess is wrong, please post your logfile.

Well I'm using Vista, so you are probably right.

Re: No Chart Downloader Tab

Is the ChartDownloader activated in the Plugins tab?
Just to check the obvious before going any further......

Re: No Chart Downloader Tab

But there is no downloader under plugins in version 4.8.8, not in mine anyway. I thought it was included in the install.

It is, but it's still a plugin listed in plugins tab.
Your log file may have some infos why it's not in the list, missing dll, whatever.

Re: No Chart Downloader Tab

Here is a reference to the problem in the logfile. Seems it can't fine the chart downloader plugin .dll.

Do I need to download it manually?

I don't think so, you can double check with a file manager that chartdldr_pi.dll is in

C:\Program Files\OpenCPN\plugins directory.


It' likely a system function called by this dll missing in vista.
